Orng,a Burmese student, graduates from Newbattle Abbey College

Orng, is a friend of Ms Vacher and Ms Laing's. He is a BEST student (Burma Educational Scholarship Trust). He is also supported by Prospect Burma, who are the UK charity that use the money Aung San suu Kyi got when she won the Nobel Peace Prize, to support Burmese students in higher education. There is a link to Prospect Burma's work on the right hand side of this page. Prospect Burma also support Dr Thein Lwin's projects to train Burmese Teachers. We were very proud of him today. Now he is going to Glasgow University to study Politics. Well done Orng!
